I’m delighted you stopped by for a visit.
If you’re looking for a classic fiction with a touch of romance, you’re in the right place! My books, whether historical or contemporary, are clean, old-fashioned love stories that satisfy avid romance enthusiasts, while containing enough action, adventure, and suspense to appeal to male readers as well.
When I started writing historical fiction novels, I never intended to cross over to military romance or Christian fiction, but that’s where my muse (and God) has taken me. The themes I write about are honor, courage, duty—and of course love, the type of enduring love that can be found in the pages of the old classics. My books are often set on a battlefield, but they are interwoven with suspense and emotional stories of attraction, conflict, and courage that inspire patriotism and a sense of faith.
So what will you find here? Characters from the past and present who are dealing with formidable challenges, but somehow find the courage to overcome them. We live in tumultuous times, but people of honor, principle, character and integrity do exist. You’ll meet them in my books. And I hope they’ll convince you that enduring love and happy endings are possible.
Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad you’re here!
THE LION OF THE SOUTH IS COMING!
So excited to have a new historical fiction novel coming out in April! It’s called THE LION OF THE SOUTH, and officially releases on April 12.
The Scarlet Pimpernel meets Gone with the Wind in this suspenseful Civil War novel that leaves the lives of two men—and the destiny of a nation—in one woman’s hands. A tale of espionage, intrigue and deception during the Civil War.
AS THE CIVIL WAR grinds into its second year, a mysterious figure known only as THE LION OF THE SOUTH emerges from the shadows to rekindle the Confederacy’s spirit of defiance.
JULIA DANDRIDGE returns to the Virginia home where she was raised, only to discover that the war has changed everything—and everyone—once dear to her. With no one to turn to and nowhere to turn, Julia is caught in a tangled web of secrets and deception. The only way to save her beloved brother from the hangman’s noose is to unmask the Lion—but who is he?
When she finally discovers the enigmatic hero’s true identity, Julia sets off on a desperate journey to stop the vengeful plot she helped set in motion, determined to save the two men whose lives hang in the balance—and redeem herself from the deadly mistake she has made.
